HI, your power supply unit has failed. you will need to replace this power supply unit asap to restore normal functions.

I would invest in some cooling enhancement in the future to prevent this type of failure.

My ps3 wont turn on and flashes red press once stops flashing pressed again and it starts to turn on (green light) then stops and beeps then flashes red


Hello
This is due to a hard drive fault.Try removing the hard drive and reinstalling it.
Also while it is out, use a can of compressed air to blow all dust from your ps3.

If the above does not work your going to need a new hard drive.

Flashing red light


"that scratchy noise" is indicative of a overheating RSX processor. when the thermal sensors under the processor of the PS3 are tripped, you get the green/red/yellow light sequence. I always tell customers its best to shut off the machine and fix the problem ASAP. if you continue to use the unit whilst overheating (if you get it to even turn on that is) you can possibly short circuit the solder joints of the BGA array and damage the uit forever. Not even SONY can fix it at this point unless the unit is reflowed, which renders the unit very unreliable anyway. reflowing rarely works for a long periods of time so SONY just replaces the unit for 150plustax with a refurb and you could wait for weeks. i usually apply thermal compound and add shims to ensure proper cooling of the two processors..the RSX and the CELL
